Thank you for your financial support toward the work we do here at the Imperial Valley LGBT Resource Center (AKA the Center). I am pleased to report that we continue to gain momentum in the quest to address the needs of our community. However, there is still much work to be done as there are far too many needs in our underrepresented and underserved LGBT population. The need, as you may imagine, is massive.
I am pleased to report that county agencies, school staff, therapists, doctors and the general public are referring people to the Center for assistance and services. We have paid for hotel rooms and bus tickets for homeless LGBT youth. We help feed and clothe the needy and we provide counseling services for those dealing with sadness, anxiety, depression, family issues, gender identity and sexual orientation. We also provide anger management, substance abuse support for youth, addiction recovery for adults, transgender support group, youth and family programs, and free HIV testing.
Our overall goal for this year is $100,000 in donations. Your financial support, encouragement and compassion will help us keep our doors open to help those who will benefit from coming to the Center. You can make a tax-deductible donation online at https://www.gofundme.com/IVLGBTCenter or send a check to Imperial Valley LGBT Resource Center, 1073 Ross Avenue, Ste. D, El Centro, CA 92243. Your contribution can be a onetime or a monthly donation.
